This is a prostrata juniper that I have had for two growing seasons now. Does anyone know the correct way to prune this type of juniper. The internodes are not like those on deciduous trees. I was thinking where the needles come out of the branch, this is where the internode would be located and thus a new shoot would appear at the base of the needle where the cut is made. Rather, when you cut a small branch the bud developes in another area on the branch - farther below the cut. This makes it difficult to know where to make the cut. Its a beautiful tree -just need to know the correct method of pruning. Thank you.
